Iowa Legal Research (Paperback) (John D. Edwards & Karen L. Wallace & Melissa H. Weresh)
About this item
Iowa Legal Research is designed for teaching legal research to first-year law students. Others who will find it helpful include practitioners, paralegals, librarians, college students, and even laypeople. The goal is to make the complex process of legal research understandable and accessible. Outlines of the research process and examples from Iowa resources make the book easy to use. URLs point researchers to where they can find access to free or low-cost legal materials on the web. Screen shots and excerpts are used frequently to help in understanding a resource. In addition to covering Iowa-specific resources, the book discusses how to find applicable federal law. Thanks to that comprehensive coverage, Iowa Legal Research can be used as a stand-alone text or in conjunction with a research text covering U.S. law. The book begins with an overview of the research process and legal analysis so that the reader can better understand the nature of these complementary components in finding and reviewing the law.
